What people are saying about Quang Ninh

Nice tour, and great service from the Cruse staff and also the booking assistant from Get Your Guide, Hanna has incredible timing contacting me at the key moments of the travel, asking me how is everything going, taking care about every detail (pick up time, drop off time, driver plates, etc etc). My vacations with my family were just amazing and all this coordination helped a lot. Don’t forget get Dongs, that was my mistake, if you miss this they do accept US dollar SOMETIMES, and if they take it, they will do at a very high exchange rate.

We had a wonderful experience on this tour. Our guide Harry was amazing and made the entire journey memorable for us. The cruise ship was in great condition and the food was lovely too. We were vegetarians and were given a good few options to eat. Kayaking in the halong bay was a bucket list moment and the tour of the caves was made even more interesting thanks to Harry's fun tidbits. Would definitely recommend everyone to go with them.

I can't say enough about how having a guide like Viet made our trip so much more fun and interesting than if we had planned on our own. He was extremely knowledgeable, super conscientious and a lot of fun

Amazing cruise. Staff always smiling and eager to please. Their English was very good

Very nice trip. Glad we selected only for one day. Was very good. :)
